196. Deputy Sean Fleming asked the Minister for Justice and Equality when a project (details supplied) will be completed; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [20391/19]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): The Deputy will appreciate that under the Garda Síochána Act 2005, as amended, the Garda Commissioner is responsible for managing and controlling the administration and business of An Garda Síochána and for the effective and efficient use of the resources at his disposal. Decisions in relation to the allocation and management of Garda equipment and resources are a matter for the Commissioner, in accordance with operational need and policing priorities. As Minister, I have no responsibility for these matters.
I have asked the Commissioner for the information requested and when it is received I will write directly to the Deputy.
